Assessment of property tax


Assessment of the properties is based primarily on the nature of occupation and the type of building. Valuation Tables for reasonable rents in respect of Commercial (Self & Rented) and Residential (Self & Rented) properties with categories of localities classified from A to G on Main/Off Road basis have been notified u/s 5-A of the Act ibid. Annual Value of the properties is calculated through the rates specified in these valuation tables.

Challan consists of three portions. The duplicate portion of this challan is sent to the E&T department through treasury where amount deposited is entered in the concerned registered.
